The REAL REASON I Leapt Off the Corporate Ladder to Start My Own Business
In 2013 I reached a turning point and was extremely unhappy. Despite the material trappings of my success I was tired of working for companies that didn't love me back, the lack of job security, always biting my tongue, leaning out, while reigning in my A Type personality, instead of "Leaning In". I did not get that VP promotion despite the hard work and dedication. I had cracked my head on the glass ceiling time and time again. I had no time for my family, working fifty to sixty hours per week, eating terribly and feeling physically and emotionally drained. When I was home, I was crashed on the couch from exhaustion too tired to spend time with my husband or kids. I was at a breaking point and had had enough! I wasn't being my authentic self nor living my values.
